A Community Empowerment Practice
As a BIPOC-led advocacy organization powered by a collaborative of grassroots organizers, CivicGeorgia strives to amplify the voice, frequency, and impact of community-led efforts for progress. Since 2017, we have acted to achieve equity & justice through & in civic engagement.
We are dedicated to civic participation by and voice for everyone in our state, with intentional inclusivity for our most silenced communities- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Georgians, our unhoused sisters and brothers, immigrant and refugee families, adopted people, LGBTQ+ folx, people of varying ability and neurodiversity statuses & identities, young people, seniors, currently and formerly incarcerated people, intersectional communities, and the many of us who are ‘othered’.
We are especially recognized for our creative & partnership-based approaches to unlocking and expanding the capacity for civic action in our communities -- for near-term impact and long-term power-building. Through these efforts we have helped register & mobilized tens of thousands of Georgians to vote and empowered even more Georgians in civic participation.
CivicGeorgia was selected to serve as Georgia's State Captain for the record-breaking National Voter Registration Day 2020 and was a co-founding and/or anchor partner for Power the Polls 2020, Vote Early Day 2020, and Party at the Mailbox Atlanta.
Anti-voter-suppression advocacy, voter registration, education, mobilization, & celebration - all to empower Georgians to be informed, active participants in our democracy.
We work on community-led advocacy for issues affecting disenfranchised communities: directly partnering in dialoguing, marching, grassroots organizing and movement-building, issue-specific civics training, and designing and implementing plans to effect change. We're also building tools to democratize advocacy.
